Why on account of the copyright notice? All I can see is (C) 2000-2005,
which is a pretty standard assertion of ownership. You don't have to
assert such ownership to have it. It does not imply any further rights
I know we've been through this, but I would like to point out again that
I think images hosted openly on a web site are fair game.
As a matter of politeness we should ask the webmaster and trawl around
for a statement on their site, but if they don't want the image
appearing outside their own site they should use the technical
mechanisms available for that.
It's analogous to web sites suing for "deep linking", i.e. placing a
link to anything but the home page. It's the way the web is designed
and it's a feature. If you don't like that particular feature, you're
bucking the trend but there are ways to stop it from happening. (Look
at the referrer header.)
